    Looks just like my roo at that age....

    Best to compare with other slw if you have them...Looks like another slw to the right in the pic.....the cockerals usually have quicker growth with their combs/wattles and they are more red...also their tails are not as big as the pullets...final analysis: Left = Roo
    Right = Pullet:fl
